Those same-sex couples in California who missed out on getting officially spliced and being able to called it marriage should know soon whether they can do so after all.
You may remember that some evil people with weird ideas and lots of money decided that having two girls or two guys get married was in some way some kind of threat to something or other. They even wanted the 18,000 couples who got married while they legally could in the state to lose that status now that the legality of same-sex marriage has bitten the dust with Proposition 8 – the measure that sought to change the State Constitution to make marriage strictly a man–woman affair.
Now, Pink News tells us that the State Supreme Court has announced that legal challenges to a ballot measure that denied gays the right to marry in California will begin oral arguments on 5 March.
Get ready to rub those hands.
